Looking for suggestions on what is the best black paint to use on my windshield on my 97 PS 205 and suggestions on prepping it?

Take your pick - but the most important is the prep so what ever you put on adheres for the long term.

I painted my 209's. Took the windshield off the boat, removed the rubber and sanded it down. After that I filled any imperfections with jb weld, let it cure for a few days, and started painting.

Painting process:
Tape off glass
Sand
aluminum primer
rustoleum satin or semi gloss (I chose satin)
Satin clear coat (3-4 coats)

Definitely satin... Matches up perfectly

I think I would try Plasti-Dip. It holds up well on wheels so a windshield frame shouldn't be a problem. It's easy to use and if it starts to look bad, it is removable.

Agree....Rustoleum satin looks great and holds up great.
I painted mine last winter but didn't remove the windshield. I just carefully masked everything off.

I would avoid that at all costs. The problem with the plasti dip is it does not like covers. When you have constant rubbing/pressure it does not hold up well. Once you get a weak spot in plasti dip you will have to patch it and then it looks like chit. The rustoleum+lots of clear keeps you good. Been there/tried that

Thanks for the input. This is going to be my winter project. I am going to take the windshield off before I put it away this winter.
